Incredible sightseeing tour! Thoroughly enjoyed seeing Guadalajara and the town of Tlaquepaque made it even better. My guide, Roni, was amazing and very knowledgeable. I got to learn more about the history and beautiful buildings in Guadalajara and roamed the streets and stores in Tlaquepaque. This is a great tour if you are looking for a good introduction of the city and have a day to explore it. Highly recommend it!
We thoroughly enjoyed this tour. We were expecting to be with others, but because we were the only english speaking people taking the tour at that time we ended up with a private tour, just us and Miguel. He did a great job giving us an overview of the historic centre and then a visit to Tlaquepaque where he gave us tips on some good restaurants to test out during our stay.
The tour was good value for money. Ricardo's English was very acceptable and his personal knowledge of Tlaquepaque, with visits to local artisans, made the tour most enjoyable. Pick up and drop off at our hotel in an immaculate sedan was a nice touch. A very nice introduction to Guadalajara .
The tour guide was unclear of where he was supposed to take us. He was formed the tour was for Tlaquepaque/Tonala not Guadalajara. He was nice enough to offer a different tour at an additional cost which was fine as the place was further. He was not very knowledgeable about the places were seeing. He gave us false information about certain places and didn't take us to highlight points in Tlaquepaque.
The trip was a shopping trip only and never included seeing glassblowing,leather craftsmen and all the other artisans the craft trip was suppose to be. Tlaquepaque is pretty large and I never got to one whole side to see the galleries and shops. It was a bit of a disappointment.

Unfortunately we were very disappointed with this tour. Even though our guide was very polite, he was not very informative - only provided us with basics, was quiet and we had to ask him questions about the area to pull information out of him. Also we did not go to the Grand Market which was very disappointing. Also, in general the city was not what I had expected. We asked to go to a really authentic restaurant with good Mexican food and margaritas - he brought us to a La Gourda which was a cheap chain and the food was bad, no margaritas and was on an unattractive street. He should have insisted on lunch in Tlaquepaque. Tlaquepaque was really nice but we did not spend very much time there only about 45 min. It was a disappointing day as a whole.
